April seems to be it’s usual mixed-up self…sun, rain, hail and even dustings of snow at the higher elevations. I’m alternating between bundling myself up tightly in my warm, fuzzy Cowichan sweater and then peeling the layers off when the sun peaks out again. It’s a month of transition. (Fingers crossed, the weekend is forcast to be "springtime" warm at 16C/61F).
The photographs above are of a few red current branches that I “pruned” from our tree. (I’m not really sure if it’s a tree or a shrub but it’s growing in the shape of a tree.) At any rate, it’s always a happy thing when the red current gives us some early spring colour.
Last weekend was an interesting one here in the cove…there was a herring run on and the herring actually came all the way into the cove…as did the the sea lions which we normally never see this far in. As I was getting ready for bed last Friday night, it was a surprise to hear sea lions barking and they barked (quite loudly, I might add) for most of the night. All the excitement brought lots of people with their fishing rods and many just to watch the antics of the sea lions, seals and eagles…all angling for their share of the herring.
I know we're already a week into the month, but Happy April to everyone…and a huge thank you for stopping here to visit. Have a beautiful weekend with family and friends.
